Red face How to install a CHAT SERVER?


Hi folks,

Does somebody here have a knowledge on how to install and configure an open chat server system? I'm using CentOS ver5.3.
Sorry I really have no idea.

If you need to setup temporary chat server, you can use nc command in following ways.
Chat server can created using nc command. For example you are on machine A (192.168.1.1) and issued following command
root# nc -l 3333
That command will create a tcp port on 3333 on machine A.

Now from machine B type following command to connect to port 3333 on machine A
root# nc 192.168.1.1 3333
Now exchange messages by typing at prompt.

there is an opensource chat server that I was able to setup for developement purposes before: openfire

I used 'spark' as the chat client on both linux and windows clients. Also tried 'Pandion' for windows and it worked as well. I was able to get it to work following some guides online but sadly I didn't write a step-by-step guide back then.

good luck!
